Now in its 38th year the Yuletide Hunger Program has been reaching out to those who are less fortunate.
The program began in 1983 following the death of Brecksville resident Rusty Mansbery. Rusty’s brother Dave wanted to thank his community for the outpouring of help and concern for his family during Rusty’s illness and he wanted to do so in a meaningful way. And so Dave created the Yuletide Hunger Program.
Preparations are underway for the Yuletide Hunger Program as the cities of Brecksville, Broadview Heights and Seven Hills are hoping for your monetary donation. Because of the virus it has been decided not to do the annual food collection in order to avoid many hands touching the food. Monetary donations can be dropped off at or mailed to The Brecksville Human Services Center at 2 Community Drive, Brecksville 44141. Checks payable please to The City of Brecksville/Yuletide Hunger Program. Funds will be used to purchase supermarket gift cards and certificates redeemable for a turkey or ham.
Last year more than 370 people were served which included 158 young people and children under 18.
